Calf House Studios

Peter Brown studied architectural design, fine art and design before embarking on an award winning career in advertising.

Peter then developed a deep fascination for working with Portland stone, which to this day is his material of choice. Sculpture took over his life in the late 90's working initially with the  East End Arts group at the Cable Street Art Factory. In 2001 Peter moved into new studio space in Buckinghamshire working on commissioned work and personal works in a variety of media and exhibiting in London and the South East.

In 2006 Peter relocated to East Yorkshire and was the first artist to take up residence at Cold Harbour Farm which was soon to evolve into Calf House Studios. Since then Peter has continued to develop his relationship with stone carving and has come to appreciate and be inspired by the subtle attraction of the landscape of the East Riding. In 2010 he was artist in residence at Burton Constable Hall a beautiful Elizabethan Country House close to Hornsea. In appreciation of this he has gifted a piece of his work to the hall which now is on permanent display in the Sacristy. He has also recently completed a commission for East Yorkshire's other Elizabethan Country House, Burton Agnes, and continues to exhibit locally and explore his own artistic journey in the ideal surroundings of Calf House Studios.

After completing a teaching qualification in adult education Peter delivers classes in drawing and painting, and regularly runs weekend workshops on 'An Introduction to Stone Carving' throughout the summer months.

Inspired by a fascination and desire to explore the potential of art and art making to influence on both an emotional and psychological level, Peter has graduated with an MA in Art Psychotherapy at Sheffield/Leeds Met. University (2012) and now works with clients of all ages in Private Practice. He has also joined forces with a colleague in Scarborough where they deliver Art Psychotherapy through their organisation ArtTherapyYorkshire to a number of groups and individuals who suffer from a wide range of emotional, psychological and physical issues.
